NoHAB loco bookend
At first, it started as a half loco, then I just thought it would make a great bookend.
About this creation
But why did I build the half of a loco? Well, because there is a half loco like that. In 1999, locomotive M61 004 of MÁV (Hungarian State Railways) hit a tree fallen on the tracks. The crash damaged it beyond repair, but one end of its body was restored and placed at the Transport Museum of Budapest.

The NoHAB is a very tricky build with its curves, so I used other LEGO NoHABs for inspiration. The hardest part ("was lettin' go not taking part", sorry, reminded me of a Coldplay song) was the sad-looking windows. I think I got a quite nice solution for that, and the overall shape turned out well enough.

Quoting Gabor Horvath Jó lett! Mondjuk kár, hogy nem egész mozdony és nem működik, mert jól elkaptad az alakját! Láttam én is élőben ezt a félmozdonyt, rendes tőlük, hogy így odatették és nem olvasztották be!
Elemhiány az nagy úr sajnos. Tényleg szép dolog volt kiállítani, sajnos a működőket kivéve csak a kettes úszta meg a szétvágást (főleg azért szomorú, mert némelyiket könnyen javítható hibák miatt selejtezték).
